2022 Hyundai Tucson

2022 Hyundai Tucson

Due here exclusively in long-wheelbase guise, the new Tucson is slated to touch down in the first half of 2021 brandishing a radical new look, revised powertrains, more tech and an abundance of safety gear. But crucially, it's not available as a stand-alone option, only paired with either a hybrid or Hyundai's new plug-in hybrid powertrain. Expect more about the timing of the Tucson hybrid and plug-in hybrid, along with their US specs, pricing, gas mileage and more, in the coming months. The new Tucson also has second-row seats that can fold flat and provides 38.7 cubic-feet (1,095 liters) of space. It's mated to an eight-speed automatic.

Hyundai says the non-PHEV version is good for a combined 230 hp and 258 foot-pounds of torque, but is not releasing any figures for the plug-in version other than to say it will be more powerful. The engine in both hybrids features a new continuously variable valve technology that varies how long the valves are open to improve power, efficiency, and emissions, according to Hyundai. An N Line edition will be launched at a later date.

Moreover, the 2021 Hyundai Tucson harbinger a range of future models as its design influence can definitely be seen elsewhere in the coming years. Hybrid and PHEV get Hyundai's first-in-class E-Handling technology to help improve steering response and directional stability when cornering.

Described by HMC as the latest evolution of its "Sensuous Sportiness design identity", the new Tucson bares nearly no resemblance to the model it will supersede next year with no two panels being the same. It incorporates sports auto cues in an SUV shape with geometric lines that hint at the technology that lays within.

This cladding can be traced around the body, with the flanks of the auto being awash with sharp contour and character lines, including one which starts from the front door and runs all the way around the rear of the vehicle to serve as the main feature line of the tailgate. At the front, daytime running lamps are hidden in the grille openings so that they are only visible when illuminated.

Chris Hemsworth isn't planning to walk away from Thor
Natalie Portman is set to wield the mythical hammer in the next film Thor film, set for release in 2022. According to Chris Hemsworth , he doesn't have any plans to quit the " Thor " franchise.

At the rear we find an integrated roof-spoiler and a full width brake strip from which stems an angled quad tail-light arrangement, complementing the inset nature of the numberplate mount.

For as wild as the look is outside, it's more traditional and upscale inside. This system offers 64 configurable colors and 10 levels of brightness.

A new car-to-home feature lets owners control smart appliances from the auto, pre-cooling or pre-warming the vehicle (including the seats and steering wheel-with just a simple voice command).

In some markets, the dual-zone climate control system will monitor air pollution and purify the air in the vehicle, Hyundai said. The feature, which Hyundai previewed a year ago, has its own laser-based fine-dust sensor, and is the first model on the market, according to Hyundai, to have a complementary technology aimed at reducing moisture-and thus odors-from the air-conditioning evaporator. Standard equipment will include forward-collision warnings with pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, active lane control, blind-spot cameras and monitors, automatic high beams, a driver-attention monitor, a surround-view camera system, reverse-collision warnings, and an automatic parking feature.

Hyundai hasn't yet announced prices or the model lineup for the fourth-generation Tucson.
